Leavenworth farmhouse description

This beautiful and fully restored 100-year-old farmhouse, built by one of the original pioneers in the Wenatchee Valley, is situated on 20 private acres in Brender Canyon, about 15 minutes from Leavenworth. With over 3,000 sq. ft. & 3 full stories, the farmhouse includes a huge stone wood-burning fireplace, new furniture, carpet, lighting, hardwood floors, new bathrooms and fixtures, beamed ceilings, antique furniture and period pieces throughout. There is a 10-foot dining room table that seats up to 18 guests handmade from the 100-year wood made available during the restoration.

Five full bedrooms and a charming fully-screened sleeping porch sleeps 16 comfortably. The former attic was completely remodeled into a modern game room & den complete with large screen TV, ping pong table, game tables, 3 twin beds, a hide-a-bed and 2 large couches. New carpet, vaulted ceilings and ceiling fan plus beautiful lighting is throughout.

The real charm from this historical property is in the land and surrounding vineyard, orchards, huge Black Walnut trees, flower gardens, pristine hills for hiking. These 20 acres adjoin Forest Service Land for a peaceful setting with elk, deer, and other wild animals always close at hand. This is the perfect family getaway for a weekend or a week with Leavenworth so close, the Columbia River for boating, and quaint & quiet Cashmere with its parks, Pioneer museum, Aplets & Cotlets store, wineries, bakeries, restaurants, bowling alley, and huge antique market places. The Wenatchee River is nearby for summer floating.

Please note: Friendly dogs are permitted as long as they are not left alone inside the house or allowed on the furniture. Wild alcohol or questionable parties are NOT permitted. Five car parking limit without prior permission. No camping, RV's, snowmobiles or ATV's are allowed. Event fees (with prior permission) may apply for groups with attendees not included in farmhouse overnight charges.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: Our busy family of five includes three college-age sons. We own and have operated a fine-dining restaurant in Seattle, where we permanently live, for over 24 years. And also own the Warm Springs Inn as of 8/13 (B&B and event venue) on the Wenatchee River nearby. Chef Ludger (& owner) was born and raised in Germany, so he naturally gravitated to the 'Bavarian beauty' and pioneer history of this old house. Julie Szmania was born & raised in Seattle, but travelled the world enough to recognize the beauty here. I'm a UW Husky, one son is a WSU graduate, and two are WWU Vikings. Plus our 2 great dogs love the farm and vineyard which we planted as a family in 2008. We now have private label Brender Canyon Vineyard Red Field Blend available for sale.

              Why the Owner Chose Leavenworth:
              Cashmere is like a dream come true in that is combines the beauty of all 4 seasons within 2 1/2 hours of Seattle. The Wenatchee River is close for tubing, the Columbia River is close for water sports and fishing. The mountains are close for skiing and we have hot enough weather to grow our own vineyard. This house is huge enough to have lots of families share it at one time without feeling crowded ever. Our kids love the 3rd floor game loft especially. We use our mountain & road bikes, as there are many hiking and horse trails. Plus 300 days of sunshine guaranteed in Cashmere is great & it's in the heart of Chelan Co. wine country. We liked the peace and privacy of acreage and our sons love all the activities surrounding the area.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              The wild animals are wonderful - as long as they stay out of the vineyard. Herds of elk and deer roam the property, plus the occasional coyotes howl. We've seen a bear and a mountain lion, tons of hummingbirds and song birds. The spring peonies are gorgeous, fruit trees and orchards are everywhere, the house is surrounded by 100+ foot tall old Black Walnut trees for shade and sheer beauty. There's lots of grass to play croquet or badmitten, slip & slide or throw a frisbee. Plus we have several friendly hens in summer and fall for farm fresh eggs daily. We treat this as our home to share with friends so it comes fully stocked with everything we could think of that you might enjoy including cords of firewood, toys, books, movies, games, puzzles and kitchen items. A Wi-Fi hotspot is not on site if you really want to work during your stay!
